Down in Saigon yesterday, we had 12 people turn up for a training session which finished off with a scratch match. Magnificent to have a few numbers.
However, Vietnam continually throws out fresh challenges. Just as we’re getting some momentum in the lead up to the Champs, RMIT will lock down their ovals for 4 weeks for “rest and repair”. So we need another venue badly!
Further bad news is that Noam leaves Saigon tomorrow bound for India. He is a very recent recruit to Aussie Rules and starred for Hanoi (!) in the recent match against Saigon. But there is also some good news. On his way to India, he’ll cruise through Hanoi. When he’s there, he’ll slip straight into training with the Hanoi-based Swans on Thursday night.
Noam’s a very lucky man as he will be one of the very few from Saigon to have experienced the hallowed dirt of the world-famous, candle-lit, Dead Cat Stadium.
It’s great to have footy happening in both cities.
